Today’s card was designed for my Blooms and Butterflies Color Challenge BB-1. The colors of the day are Black and White. Therefore, I used the Stampin’ Up! Happy Day Stamp Set along with black and white card stock and black StazOn ink. I love how this card turned out!
This card is so fun to make and it’s a 5 minute WOW for sure! The base is Basic Black. I cut and folded the whisper white piece. Next, I used the 2-1/2″ Circle punch to punch out the circle in the front top of the card and, then, I glued the white base to the top of the card. The trim was fun to make too. I wanted it to appear like matching ribbon. I used the scraps from cutting the whisper white card stock and stamped on it with the same image in the scallops. To take it a step further, I stamped a scrap piece and tied it like a ribbon with a knot. I used a mini glue dot and it’s hard to see but it’s toward the bottom of the card. I also had fun making a beautiful embellishment out of Stampin’ Up! pressed clay and buttons and blossoms mold. It’s so fun!
